Kelly Clarkson Laughs Off Suggestion to Date Pete Davidson or Tom Brady After Brandon Blackstock Divorce: ‘I’m Not Looking’

Kelly Clarkson won’t be falling for any famous bachelors following her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

The American Idol alum, 41, discussed her aversion to dating during an interview on The Howard Stern Show
ahead of the Friday, June 23, release of her album Chemistry. “I will [eventually],”
she explained. “I just don’t want to right now. It just seems, like, exhausting.”

Clarkson clarified that when she’s ready to look for love again, she “definitely won’t” be using dating apps. “I’m not against them or above them,” she noted. “I just … that scares me.”

The “Breakaway” artist wouldn’t be afraid of making the first move, however. “I would ask someone out,” she said. “I think I’m over the trauma [of my divorce], I just really enjoy me right now.”

When Howard Stern asked how long it would be before Clarkson is spotted on a date with Pete Davidson, the Voice coach couldn’t help but laugh. “Here’s the thing, Pete is cute,” she conceded of the comedian, 29, whose exes include Kim KardashianAriana Grande and more. “And he’s funny. I’m just saying, he’s cute and he’s funny … Pete Davidson, you are wonderful, but no. I’m not looking.”

With his initial suggestion turned down, Stern, 69, brought up another big name: Tom Brady. The retired NFL pro, 45, announced in October 2022 that he and Gisele Bündchen called it quits after more than a decade of marriage.

Clarkson considered the possibility before ultimately deciding Brady wasn’t The One for her. “I have a lot of confidence,” she explained. “I’m a very confident woman. [But] I don’t think I’d like to follow Gisele Bündchen. … How do you not think about that when you’re making out with him?”

The “Because of You” singer might not be fully ready to date, but she does have her eyes on a few celebrity crushes — albeit unconventional ones. “[They] aren’t, like, real people. They’re, like, the characters they play,” she teased, citing Nathan Fillion‘s character from the ABC hit Castle as one of her favorites. “I have crushes on, like, fake people.”

Clarkson has been candid about her hopes for the future since splitting from Blackstock, 46, in June 2020. The pair were married for nearly seven years before Us Weekly confirmed that the musician filed for divorce. They share two children: River Rose, 9, and Remington, 7.

It didn’t take long for the duo’s divorce proceedings — which were finalized in March 2022 — to become messy. Clarkson won primary custody of their kids, with Blackstock receiving monthly visitation. As part of their settlement, the “Since U Been Gone” singer agreed to pay her ex a one-time sum of $1.3 million and $115,000 per month in spousal support until January 2024.
